Great response! I was wondering about the pollutants from burning while camping on Memorial Day weekend. Whereas I left the city to get some fresh air, I now have a cough from all the campfires in close vicinity. Is the air from wood fires bad, and if so, how bad?


i think we also need to take into account that the new farmer needs to heat his house somehow, and if he's not burning wood, he is likely using fossil fuels of some sort to do the heating... so i would say burn the wood.

In answer to the first comment, I've had the same so I think it is bad.

If you do not check and have a careful tought you would have tought that it would be better if you cleared the mess of dead wood. But no, dead wood gives a new lease of life to the forest by providing for animals and turning back to soil. Keep your money in your pocket and keep the log where it is love. The only thing you should worry is the fire risk during the hot summer months.

I really like that strictly environmental point of view, if the company is still in the woods, it would be better to move only the rotten wood under the trees, and left to rot.

I think we must also take into account that the farmer needs to heat the new house in some way, and if not burning, it is likely that the use of fossil fuels to make a kind of heat ... so I say burn the wood.


I like this content The wood is that at least chipped wood can
be useful, whereas simply burning it releases global-warming carbon dioxide and a lot of air pollutants. Of course your tiny little burn would be totally negligible compared to the obscene excess combustion of all the coal-fired power plants and cars in our benighted world, not to mention the collateral damage of streams polluted by mines and the Gulf Coast ruined by oil slicks. But if you aspire to be a complete Eco-purist, don’t torch the wood.


Indeed it is better to left the wood under the remaining trees, I read it a few years ago that it is better for the environment.
